Great gala dress

This dress is so much better quality than it looks in the picture. The skirt is full and falls much more dramatically than a normal aline. Reasonable length and no need for a bra. I was worried the dress would be boring but it had a lot of presence.

Loved the dress. But the only way that was zipping up all the way was if someone stepped on my rib cage.

Stunning!

Dress is amazing! Was perfect for a black tie wedding! I received so many compliments! The dress is very comfortable. The pockets are a bonus. I'm 5'8" and I got the long. I wore a 5 inch heel and the dress was brushing the floor. I personally like my gowns down to the ground, but I did get stepped on a few times! Overall, a beautiful dress! Was sad when I had to take it off!

Great dress, not for short girls

I am 5"3 and 148lbs. It was a bit too long for me, even in heels. It was beautiful and flattering dress, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under 5'4" (unless you are willing to put on very high heels). Pockets were a huge plus.

So elegant!

The dress I wore was a size 0R. At 5'3 and 110lbs, the dress was a little too big. Loose in the top and about 2.5" too long when wearing 2" platforms. I could have worn higher heels! Overall the dress was beautiful! Very comfortable. AND... did I mention it has POCKETS!! perfect for stashing lip color and chewing gum!

Confidence in a dress!!

I am very uncomfortable in my own skin after having a baby. The dress looked fabulous and I felt fabulous. It's very flattering and I got tons of compliments. I never show my cleavage and this dress is a little low cut but I actually felt more confident then I have in years. I am very impressed with the entire process and thankful for the confidence RTR gave me!!

So beautiful! Size up for backup

This dress was amazing. I’m currently between a 2 and 4. The 2 could be zipped up without a bra but it was too tight. I wore the 4 with a strapless bra and was comfortable all night long. Did I mention the dress HAS POCKETS? I think this dress would look good on all size bodies. It's super flattering. Wore it with Grandma's Closet earrings and Evil Eye Clutch.

Best for fuller chests

Oddly large and constructed bust looked awkward on me, even with a padded bra.

Classic silhouette!

Unfortunately too large in the body and the size down was not available in time for the event. Pros: Classic silhouette. Think fabric but not too bulky. Great neckline! Possibly long enough for us tall ladies (even with heels?)

Dancing in this dreaa

Gown fit well (true to size) and was surprisingly comfortable. I have D size boobs and didn't need a stick on bra. Felt like a million bucks in the dress.

Many compliments!

I'm usually a 0 in mall brands, and I erred on the side of tighter since this was strapless. Beautiful fit. I'm 32DD and the corset was TIGHT, which helped create the cleavage I was going for, but would be unmanageable on anyone bigger. POCKETS were a lifesaver. No purse needed!

Beautiful gown. Wonderfully made

Long is actually long enough! I'm 5'11" & I could wear at least a 1" heel comfortably. Didn't choose this dress due to strapless insecurities.

Gorgeous and comfortable!

This dress is beautiful and comfortable. And who doesn't love a gown with pockets?! I'm 5'8" and got the long as recommended. It just hit the floor with 3.5" heels. It was elegant with some fun and unique details that kept it from being boring and forgettable. The cut of the dress and the front waist fabric helped distract from anything I wanted to hide in the mid section. In all, choosing something comfortable helped ensure I was able to have fun all night. I didn't feel I needed shapewear which is a bonus!

Simply Gorgeous

I wore this to a televised awards show and loved it. I received compliments from my friends and I felt elegant, gorgeous and well heeled in this dress. The fabric is heavy with a slight sheen. The draping is wonderful and the cut of the bustline is universally flattering. The dress was long enough on me to have worn flats, but I opted for heels. The hidden pockets were a major bonus - I was able to keep my phone in there. I would wear this again and recommend it highly.

Safe choice - Runs Large

This dress is a very safe choice but it also felt like I was going to prom. I was going to a non-profit ball and it just was not the occasion to wear something as bulky and not fun.

Compliments all night long

Con: I had to order 2 sizes up for the dress to fit my bust. I'm a 40DDD. Pro: The dress is comfortable, pockets are a plus, the length was perfect to brush the floor in heels. The dress highlights all the right curves.

It fit very well and stayed in place all night. Has pockets!

I am tall (5'11"), busty, and curvy. This dress hit in all the right places. I'm always nervous about strapless, but, this dress was perfect all night. I wore small heels and the long length was just right. It's classy and I received compliments all night. A regular strapless bra worked just fine.

The dress was a great fit! Fit in all the right places. It was so comfortable and had pockets! I measured myself on the designer's website to get the right size. Fit like a glove!

Didn't wear it but would have for a different event

While the dress did have a lot of fabric which made it a bit heavy, it was a good fit, plenty of room and support for the bust and looked very elegant. Given I was going to a spring event, the black color was just too much.

Wore this to a black tie holiday party.

The dress was a little larger than I expected, and therefore kept slipping and was too long. I would recommend ordering a size down! However, it is very elegant and simple; I got a lot of compliments.

Black tie Gala

It's a beautiful dress, and its probably more of my sizing than the dresses fault, I have a pear shape, with that being said, if you have a smaller chest and waist this is going to be big on you.

Comfortable and elegant!

The 18 was way too big but this one almost didn't zip up! The trick is to zip it up off of you and put it on over your head! Worth it!

Disappointed

I ordered a 2R and a 4R as a backup, but the 4R was cancelled at the very last minute. The 2R was a tiny bit too small to zip up. I was very disappointed because the 4R would have been perfect. It's an elegant and flattering dress for a small bust/petite frame with high heels. Too bad I couldn't wear it.
